Animals explore the outdoors all year round. Bundle up and let's join them to explore the winter landscape using Native American stories as our guide. Why is the possums tail naked? How do you play snow snakes? Who lives in the cave? Is there life under the ice in the pond? When we use our imagination and our observation skills, nature reveals wonder all around us!

Navigating through the winter months can be filled with exciting travels. Embark on your own journey right here in Quarry Hill Park. Adapt to the weather and landscape just as the animals do when you navigate through the park with compass in hand. Practice orienteering skills to help you reach unique destinations in the park. And what would travels be without fun and games?  Active animal themed games and scavenger hunts will round out the fun. Conditions permitting, we'll use cross-country skis and snowshoes to traverse the snow covered trails to our destinations.

Hearty Minnesotans don't hibernate just because it's winter! Gear Up: you provide warm outdoor clothes and we provide the rest for adventure in true north style. Travel along miles of trails on cross-country skis. No experience is needed - we will provide the equipment, teach you the basics and you'll be gliding along in no time!  And, strap on a pair of snowshoes to head off the beaten path into the meadow and among the forest trees for a new perspective on nature. 
Poor trail conditions? No problem! We've got a whole bag full of Minnesota outdoor fun activities to choose from.
